Default HDMI Issues

Hey Guys,

I am looking for some advice on a solution to my issue. I have a dell U2311H monitor. What I am trying to do is be able to switch the dispaly from my XBOX to the PC and back. I am using an HDMI/DVI adapter to make the connection to the monitor.

I have tried an HDMI switch, but I could not get a signal to go through and be displayed. So, I thought maybe I would try using an extra HDMI cable, leave it hooked to the Monitor, and manually switch from XBOX to PC using an HDMI female/female adapter. Still nothing.

The display registers that something is plugged in, but it still will not display either PC or XBOX. The XBOX will work if it is hooked directly to the monitor. For whatever reason, both the switch, and the adapter are preventing any signal from being transferred straight through. I have verified the switches and cables work with my home theatre system.

Any clue what the hell is happening here ?

Thanks,

Stang
